any doc to advise, i am only 33, but few days ago i go x ray on my problem back, and the doc points to a area and says i am aging, never says anything liao......

i called some places and they dun wanna give comments, says wanna view the x ray then can, and they highlighted that my age shd not have such problem, only for 50 overs yrs ppl.

what am i suppose to do?

My back have persistent sores and pain, and i cannot stand long, else the back will be unbearable, the pain.

the x ray does not show my back bone got problem, so SAF will not give a damn, and still i need to go for IPPT, which sure fail, as i cannot do sit up. But i am having problem w my back, so what shd i do man........i dun mind go reservist, but this stupid systems..........sigh.......

docs would def wanna see x-rays before making their professional judgements -> protect their ricebowls mah..

u can try relieving the pain and strain by doing 'self-therapy' like relaxing or stretching.. i strained my back last year - cant stand, cant sit, cant sleep.. in the end, went to NUH then to raffles, put on physiotherapy.. here's some tips u can read up: http://www.spine-health.com/topics/conserv/overview/exercise/ex01.html

requesting for an X ray b4 giving an opinion is not a matter of protecting their ricebowl.

y the X ray is so important? its because firstly, u do not need to go thru a surgical procedure just to see if there's any problem from within. X rays are arguably one of the tools that may yield clues that can help with a doctor's diagnosis or confirm his prognosis.


the symptoms that you've mentioned about backache and all that pain could be the result of many plausible complications, be it infection, aging, stress injury....blah blah blah...

it wouldn't be right if a doc just gives a prognosis based on what u've mentioned and what he thinks and without at least some preliminary scan results.

go seek a 2nd opinion, from a orthopaedic surgeon (but first get a referal letter....cheaper that way:p )

and i'm no doc...........:p

keke...maybe go for some back therapy.

Try this TCM (traditional chinese medicine) called Yu Guo, it is along Changi Road near Frankel road. They are specialist for kids, but have adults side as well.

recently my wrist was in so much pain, i did not bother about it thinking i just sprained it. but after 2 weeks it was unbearable, so i went there. After treatment with medicine and massaging much better, but will need to follow up.

maybe you should try, near your office anyway..;)

Hi David,

Perhaps you should go do some blood tests, since age of 20, i have already very backache till i cant move not even lying on the bed to rest. And i have been consulting numerous of specialists all these years (Bone Specialist)

Till last year, i have a serious "outbreak" for it. And suspected gout so need to do blood test, after done 4 times of blood test and my result is out. This is what i have, Ankylosing Spondylitis. After so many years, now then i know what have been creating my "back" problems.

Hope you are not having the same problems with me.

Lots of people don't exercise and when their 30s hit, they're unprepared.

If you have back pain, it's likely to be weak abdominal muscles, so that every time you pick up something, you're working extra hard.

You should also look at your work environment to make sure that your chair and desk are sufficiently high. Posture is important.

It also doesn't hurt to sit down to eat at a leisurely pace. :)

lol "ageing"?! What kind of medical diagnosis is that? Seek 2nd opinion most definitely from a qualified medical professional.
